As Halloween fades into memory, thoughts turn towards the upcoming holiday season, especially at Disneyland Resort, where the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year” will be celebrated from November 10 to January 7, 2024. If you’re planning a holiday visit (and we hope you stay with us here at Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground), here’s what awaits you at “The Happiest Place on Earth” in November and December.

We’re hoping our guests here at Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel & Water Playground will join us in wishing our famous neighbor across the street a very happy 68th birthday on Monday, July 17.
